This offseason we will count down various topics from Monday through Friday, bringing you the top five of the important and definitely some not so important issues in college football. It's the Doc Five, every week until we will thankfully have actual games to discuss.
COACHES WHO COULD PROBABLY USE A BIG SEASON
NO. 1, LANE KIFFIN
This will go against what we have been saying about Lane Kiffin in this space for a while, but perhaps he gets a harder time than he should.
There are good reasons that he's No. 1 on this list, and we'll get to them. But Kiffin, who is still just 37 years old, didn't rise through the coaching ranks by accident. There are some positives on his resume.
He grew up as the son of a defensive coaching legend, Monte Kiffin. When he was given play-calling duties as offensive coordinator at USC, the program was great and his offenses were unstoppable. Credit previous coordinator Norm Chow for getting the ball rolling or the incredible talent USC had at the time if you want, but Kiffin did do a fine job there. He was a heck of a recruiter too.
